Bashful Bachelorette

When I received the order to make cupcakes for a bachelorette, a sly smile drew across my face. Especially considering the details that were to be added on. Now, this was not going to be a PG-13 event but they also didn’t want it too crass. So we managed to strike a good balance. Click more to see the final product.

Instead of having crudeness topped onto the cupcake, I opted to make cookies which were inserted through the frosting. These are vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, and a shortbread cookie. The colour theme was orange and purple, so we went with orange-coloured frosting.

 

With the weather being unbelievably hot, I generally would struggle to keep the frosting firm – especially cream cheese. So storing it in the fridge after it’s been whipped is a good idea, and then storing the iced cupcakes in the fridge as well (as opposed to on the table waiting to be delivered/collected). I learnt this the hard way a few weeks ago.

As always, thanks for reading,

And all that sweet stuff, B.
